“The move follows our strategy to grow in the Midwest by acquiring agencies with a track record of success and a culture which aligns with ours,” Acendas Travel President Brent Blake said.  “Gwin’s is a great fit and we are excited to have a larger presence in St. Louis and become involved with the community.”

Gwin’s was started in 1979 by Graydon and Terrie Gwin.  It is a full-service travel agency servicing corporate and leisure travelers.
